asking the real questions here
You think the originals might be superior to the remakes? My 4k monitor says, "Probably not"...;) At least these GOG originals will be stripped of the gawd-awful DRM that afflicted the original versions of the games--which I have. That may be one thing slowing the process on the originals. Before these remakes came to GOG, I had already stripped both games from my installed game base because I got really bored with doing work-arounds for the ancient, discontinued DRM schemes the originals were plagued with. Anyway, downloading the remasters now--judging from the screenies GOG has posted, should be treats @ 4k.
I know that some folks favor original games over remakes--even if the remakes are demonstrably better--I cannot say I agree with that, personally. As long as they are decent and manage to improve on the originals, I tend to favor remakes. But that certainly is not a criticism of your point of view...!...;)
There's some areas in the remaster that don't look as good and actually have things like missing particle effects
Also noticed some bugs here or there, the part with the woman lurching over a baby pram thing, and you see her shadow on the wall, her shadows head is entirely cut off in the remaster .. And that was just what I noticed from playing it for 10 mins
I hope all these issues are fixed, but not everything in this remaster was "better"
